The surah that enshrines the spiritual-, property-, lineage-, and marriage-rights and obligations of Women. It makes frequent reference to matters concerning women (nisāʾ), hence its name. The surah gives a number of instructions, urging justice to children and orphans, and mentioning inheritance and marriage laws. In the first and last verses of the surah, it gives rulings on property and inheritance. The surah also talks of the tensions between the Muslim community in Medina and some of the People of the Book ( verse 44 and verse 61 ), moving into a general discussion of war: it warns the Muslims to be cautious and to defend the weak and helpless ( verse 71 ff.). Another similar theme is the intrigues of the hypocrites ( verse 88ff. and verse 138 ff.).

٥٤ - یا جو خدا نے لوگوں کو اپنے فضل سے دے رکھا ہے اس کا حسد کرتے ہیں تو ہم نے خاندان ابراہیم ؑ کو کتاب اور دانائی عطا فرمائی تھی اور سلطنت عظیم بھی بخشی تھی .
